Cool - but given the numbers on those planets, the tidal force exerted by the star on even the farthest planet is about 7000x what the moon produces on the earth. Those are some massive waves. On...

That's one way, but unless you are getting energy out of the nucleus of the atom, your spacecraft would weigh a billion pounds. Better to just do the spinny thing and allow inertial forces to produce...

Pretty clear that classical mechanics is out the window. Figure out how to play with the curvature of space time or prepare to come back to a very different home.

Wouldn't be caught dead with stripes on my car. You are clearly much wiser than your buddy by choosing both a BMW and no stripes :thumbup:

3M crystalline would be your best bet to stay as legal as possible. It was designed to be a very light tint with good heat rejection properties, but is quite expensive.

Software will only take you so far. At some point you'll be asking too much of the original components and will likely be significantly degrading their life.

Lease sales are on fire in the US. If it adds even $20 to a monthly lease payment, I don't think very many people will consider that a deal-breaker.

Do you have the music from the CDs on a computer/laptop? If so, you could just write those to the usb drive.

Saddle brown would have been my choice if it was an option with Msport. If its a lease, then there are fewer concerns about ivory white picking up unwanted color over time.

I think the process is pretty similar to me. You buy a car and you pick the options - same with a house if you choose to build. Your test drive would be equivalent to walking through a model home....
